The Marsh Academy is a coeducational secondary school based in New Romney, Kent. The Academy specialises in Business and Enterprise and benefits from the sponsorship of Microsoft, Kent County Council and the Tonbridge School.

Our focus at the Academy is on ensuring that every child achieves his or her potential, both academically and personally. We provide the individual support that each child needs in an environment that is nurturing yet challenging - every child is encouraged to push his or her boundaries to develop the confidence and range of skills that will equip them well for life after secondary school.

We are looking forward to great things at the Marsh Academy: not only do we expect exam results to continue to improve, but we have just moved into a fantastic new building that will provide an outstanding learning environment for our students. These are exciting times at the Marsh Academy, and we are keen to welcome your child and make them a part of our bright future.
